We are now reporting from Day 2 of #TacoGate. Eyes across the nation are focused on the city of Milwaukee, as it remains at war over BelAir Cantina's supposed lackluster service toward Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, causing him to leave the taqueria's Water Street location after 10 minutes of waiting and instead dine at DiModa.
Was Giannis told to wait or was he completely ignored? Should the NBA All-Star – and the man responsible for Milwaukee's game-winning basket on Sunday – have been immediately granted a table for his heroics anyway? And what happens to BelAir Cantina's apologetic free tacos if, say, the Bucks – heaven forbid – win in seven games? These are the hard questions Milwaukee – and, really, the entire globe – must confront and debate today.
Here's one thing we know for certain: The next time Giannis is craving tacos, he'll at least always have a seat waiting for him at Mazorca.
Well, that's actually pretty adorable. And in other nice news, The Saucy Swine and redbar are taking this moment to give back to the community (and also dunk on BelAir Cantina) with a special event Wednesday night and a $1,000 donation to Giannis's charity of choice. Look at that: Something good came from this story!
Stay tuned for more updates from Day 2 – aka hopefully the final day – of #TacoGate. Oh, and also Giannis and the Bucks will play Game 5 of their tied-up playoff series against the Celtics on Tuesday night in Boston, as if that even matters anymore.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
